Description

For half of the day, learn how to design awesome 3D objects using BlocksCAD, a software program developed at Einstein’s Workshop. BlocksCAD combines 3D modeling with block-based coding for an easy to use and educational experience. We will also print a few of the students’ own models on our 3D printers to take home! The other half of the day, we’ll take you from the basics of robot building and movement to advanced navigation with sensors: teaching the robot how to make decisions for itself! LEGO Mindstorms is a great system to build your robot and then use the drag-and-drop coding software to give it commands. This is a great first step for anyone, including students interested in competitive robotics. (Materials for LEGO projects remain in the classroom and projects are not brought home.)
